Rock Docs At Sundance

Apparently Sundance isn’t all about celebrities grabbing free swag at Motorola parties. A few concert documentaries screened, and early buzz has me looking forward to theatrical releases for these three:

Neil Young: Heart Of Gold

  • By Jonathan Demme
  • Preview Trailer Here: heartofgoldmovie.com

    Beastie Boys: Awesome; I Fuckin’ Shot That

  • By audience members at MSG, 10/9/04
  • Preview “Brass Monkey” here: WIN | REAL

    Leonard Cohen: Leonard Cohen: I’m Your Man

  • By Lian Lunson
  • Preview Trailer Here: leonardcohenimyourman.com

    Blogger Ben Wagner interviewed The Edge and Rufus Wainwright about I’m Your Man for MTV News. Today he’s interviewing Neil Young and Jonathan Demme. Gotta say I’m extremely jealous, Ben! But then again, I don’t know what the fuck I’d ask Neil Young. I know he likes toy trains.

    Anyone go to Sundance and/or see any good movies? Fill us in.

    UPDATE: Left this one out…

    The Police: Everybody Stares: The Police Inside Out

  • By Stewart Copeland
  • I don’t have a link to the trailer, but early reviews suggest this doc offers little insight to the trio’s infamous dynamic. Maybe only for die-hard fans … like me. The movie title refers my favorite song off Regatta De Blanc, and one of few in the Police catalog written by drummer Copeland. Sting let Stewart and Andy put one or two of their own songs on each album, and those were usually the worst (“Mother,” anyone?), but this is an exception.
